Nutrition & Detox
Did you know that the majority of children with ASD, ADHD and other learning and behavioural challenges have immature digestive systems and can’t absorb much of the nutrition from what they eat which may cause a "leaky gut"?
In fact, virtually all of them are fussy eaters with very limited diets, which means that they can’t possibly be getting the proper nutrition for fuelling the brain and body.
Not only that, they might be sensitive to certain foods they cannot digest properly creating an array of symptoms that you would never related to what they ate.
Food sensitiveness symptoms:
Irritability and/or emotional breakdowns
Refusing to eat, or eating only certain foods, Aggression
Diarrhea, constipation or painful stools
Parasites or bacteria over growth
There is no magic bullet to unraveling the whole complexity of learning challenges and their relationship to nutrition, nor food can be the only contributor to it.
